A model born without a forearm just got married wearing a gold prosthetic hand after she's been wearing the same black bionic limb for almost 20 years.
Rebekah Marine was born with limb abnormality - symbrachydactyly and has been wearing a black prosthetic arm for the past 19 years but her wedding day called for a special occasion so she got a gold arm made.
The 31-year-old from Woodbury, New Jersey married Jared Paster, a 32-year-old medical student on April 7 wearing the gold bionic arm so that it would draw people's attention and show them that she's happy the way she is.

Since 1999 she's always worn a black i-limb quantum prosthetic hand, which was made with advanced gesture control technology but she knew from the moment she got engaged that she wanted to wear a 'wedding arm' she told Yahoo Lifestyle.
'I knew when I got engaged that I wanted a wedding arm - I wanted to do something special,' she told the outlet.

She continued on explaining that the gold hand was made to draw attention.

'The whole point of wearing it was to draw attention to it,' she explained.

'I wanted people to see it and notice it because I am proud of where I am right now.'

'Originally I had liked the idea of white but I realized you might lose it with the white of my wedding dress. A friend suggested gold.

She expressed how she's always battled with the fear of not being able to marry someone because of her arm and how all of her dreams have finally come true.
'Growing up I feared marriage because I feared everyone looking at me, so it's awesome to see how far I've come.'
Rebekah gushed about her new arm saying it's her 'new favorite accessory,' and she even wore it on her entire honeymoon in Mexico.
Wearing her gold arm around the beach with the sun blaring on it was not an easy task to deal with as she explained, 'I would wear sunglasses and I could see everybody staring at me because they didn't know I was looking at them. It was cool to see people staring at it in awe.

'The gold arm makes me more approachable. It draws a lot more attention and the whole point of wearing it is to draw attention to it. I want people to ask questions and I want to educate people about it,' she explained.

As for how she feels now that she's finally comfortable in her own skin Rebekah shared: 'We all can't be Kim Kardashian, realistically, so we have to learn to embrace our uniqueness. It is so important to talk about the differences we all have.'

At 22, she looked into getting a myoelectric-controlled prosthesis, an artificial limb that the users controls with electrical signals generated by their own muscles.
After she got fitted for it, her friend asked if she was going to model her new 'accessory', and Rebekah was inspired to embrace her unique look and return to modeling.
